Few things are as exasperating as losing keys or forgetting where your car is at, but those are exactly the type of issues WIMy addresses – by telling you where exactly something is thanks to its keychain and phone app.
The Spanish team at AppKideak came up with a nice little concept, where using a small tracker shaped like a puzzle piece is used to keep track of things, via a phone app – and then, the app displays both the distance from the object along with the direction the object was at. This works both with or without network coverage, and if something ever happened to the tracker itself, WIMy will point out the last place it ever was at.
WIMy has a range of 50 to 60 meters, but it can use other WIMy users as rely points for increased distance and community work: if someone walks by our WIMy, the app will learn the location and point us towards it. WIMy also works the other way around, and it is actually possible to use the piece to track your phone itself, in case you lost that too.
The team will make the app available for iPhone 4S and above, and Android 4.4 and above. And while the project is merely at the crowdfunding stage at Indiegogo, it’s already showing a lot of promise. We wish them luck, it’s a great concept after all.
